Antique White Action & Walk Through
I've been tinkering around with Photoshop actions for the last week, and although I'm
a heavy user of textures, I rarely ever use actions. I've never really delved into making
actions seriously, but I thought it was time to finally do it, not an easy task on my part.
The before image is posted above.
Antique White Walk Through:
Step 1:Open Image which automatically becomes the background layer, click on the
background and duplicate the layer, then go to Filter and select Sharpen, then
select sharpen again.
Step 2:Go to Layer, select New Fill Layer, select solid color, click OK then enter
#e1dbbf and then OK - now select Multiply as the layer mode and set the opacity at 50%.
Step 3:Go back to the background layer and dupliate it again, then drag it on top
so its the top layer.
Step 4:Make sure the top layer is selected and go to Filter and select Stylize then
select emboss, now set the Height to 4 and the Amount at 56, click OK. Now set the
layer mode to Color Dodge and the opacity to 30%.
Step 5: Now go to Image, then adjustments, and select Channel Mixer and set the Preset
to Custom, Red at +111,Green at +99, Blue at -58, and the Constant at -15 %, leave the
Monochrome unchecked, click OK.
Step 6: Go to Layer, select New Fill Layer, select solid color, click OK then enter
#efc3f0 and then OK - now select Linear Dodge as the layer mode and set the opacity at 32%.
Step 7: Go to Layer, New Adjustment Layer, select Brightness/Contrast, then set the Brightness
at -5 and the Contrast at +29, click OK.
Step 8: o to Layer, New Adjustment Layer, select Brightness/Contrast, then set the Brightness
at -9 and the Contrast at +18, click OK.
That's it, we're done.
